Overview
Computer Science is a hands-on, projects-based curriculum that utilizes a unique computing platform to engage students in an immersive exploration of the breadth of computer science. Through a puzzle-based learning approach that is strategically meshed with candid discussions of the philosophy and expectations that underlie the learning process, a foundation of problem solving and critical thinking is laid upon which the four major themes of computer science are then iteratively built as pillars.
